Miami at Houston Sunday, 1:00 p.m. ET, at Reliant Stadium, Houston - TV: CBS; DirecTV: 709 *TV announcers: Ian Eagle, Dan Fouts *Keys to the game: Houston is going to run the ball, set up the pass and put some points on the board. Question is, can Dolphins rookie QB Ryan Tannehill keep pace? Facing coordinator Wade Phillips' 3-4 defense is a challenge for the most veteran quarterbacks, much less an extremely raw rookie with very questionable downfield options. Miami must run the ball effectively out of the gate, a tall task considering its thin offensive line has been beset by a string of bumps and bruises. That puts the onus on the Dolphins' defense to contain RBs Arian Foster and Ben Tate and come up with turnovers to create short fields. Texans QB Matt Schaub shook off rust as the preseason went on, and if WR Andre Johnson is indeed healthy and able to stretch the field he will keep the safeties honest. *Matchup to watch - Dolphins LDE Jared Odrick vs. Texans RT...

Even though they are not on the active team, they are still an important part...
